Dig Tree entrance fee ??

Tried to search this topic on past forum threads but to no avail. I think it's me.

I'm sure it's probably irrelevant having spent all that money on getting to the tree but what is the cost of actually seeing it ??

True Blue,

The Dig Tree entry fee is $11.00 per vehicle or Aircraft, unless the entry fee has gone up with the upcomming budget from the QLD Government ;)


Cheers Kev

When we were there 3 years back it was $8 per vehicle ( I think) and it's an honor system, but remember that there is a ranger dropping in all the time.
He is a top bloke, but I just forget his name ....!

Worth paying the fee, as it's a nice place to camp up for a couple of days.

Cheers Bucky

Hey True Blue,
2 weeks ago the entrance fee was $11.00 per vehicle or aircraft.
The man is standing at the gate to take your money. There is a tin shed with a lot of history on the wall. You can camp and there are toilets and steel picnic tables.
Enjoy
Guy

Was there 6 weeks ago and old Bomber was the guide with his young offsider at the gate to collect $11 per car. It's great for city slickers like us to interact with fair dinkum bushies. Anyway the dough all goes to the cattle station which is one of Kidmans holdings. You be the judge of that. We enjoyed a cuppa there, the scenery, the info in the shed and the loo. At $2.75 a head it was a bargain!! All part of the Dig Tree Circuit loop from Innamincka Cheers, Glenn

Glen,

I think you will find that none of the money goes to Kidmans as the site is not theirs.

In 1964 the Queensland government excised an area of land around it from Nappa Merrie to create what is known as a Reserve for Memorial Purposes. The Royal Historical Society of Queensland are the trustees but management was, and still is carried out Stanbroke Pastoral Company which leased Nappa Merrie at the time. I understand that Kidmans only took up the lease in early 2007 and that will expire in 2014.

Anyway, the Reserve is now in the hands of Stanbroke Pastoral, the Royal Historical Society of Queensland and Bulloo Shire Council. The Qld Dept of Environment and Heritage puts up the signage but that quiet achiever, Dick Smith, pays the for it as he quietly does in so many places of historical interest throughout Australia.
